CEC NUTA in a representation to chief rector, Nagaland University, governor of Nagaland, Nikhil Kumar on September 30 alleged that the vice chancellor was violating norms by trying to conduct interviews for the post of teachers without re-advertisement as time had already lapsed.
The CEC stated that results of the interviews held on October 2009 for the post of teachers could not be declared by the executive council owing to serious procedural lapses and violation of university ordinance by the VC, and moreover since no member wanted to take the risk and responsibility.
The representation added that centralized screening of applications was against university rules since it is usually done by teachers of the respective departments and not by teachers of other departments.
Highlighting discrepancy in screening for teaching posts for SETAM School of Engineering and Management, CECNUTA president and general secretary said not a single Naga candidate were selected in the final list in spite of their eligibility.
According to the CEC, the vice chancellor had also failed to address the issue of those Naga Schedule Tribe (ST) teachers who entered university service through “open category” and were “illegally placed under ST quota” and as a result obstructing entry of Naga candidates into university teaching service.
Stating the latest advertisement did not follow the reservation policy, the CEC further alleged the VC of sidelining local Naga candidates by turning ST posts into open posts in certain departments.
